Those who have been watching the Kapamilya “sweet-com” My Papa Pi would know that there’s a famous ‘tumbungan’ at the fictional Barangay Mapag-asa owned by twins Pipoy (Piolo Pascual) and Popoy (Pepe Herrera), which is being flocked by its people because of the sumptuous and affordable pork rectum soup it offers.
Thus, two of its stars, Anthony Jennings and Daisy “Madam Inutz” Lopez, visited an “OG” or original tumbungan in Ugbo, Tondo, Manila to see if it could beat Popoy’s popular tumbong in this video titled “Anthony Talks with Madam Inutz.” But aside from that, they also had a fun yet heartwarming conversation about motherhood, just in time for Mother’s Day celebration.
Anthony started off the interview by asking her about the most memorable pasyalan she and her kids had gone to. She related that she used to bring her three kids in Luneta every time she went home from working abroad many years ago. Aside from seeing it as a safer and more practical option than taking them to the mall, she also wanted to be exposed to and learn more about our country’s history.
When quizzed who among her three children is the naughtiest, she revealed that it’s her eldest, who he regards as her male version since they share the same traits. Meanwhile, with regards to what extent she can sacrifice for them, she told him that she’s completely willing to offer her life.
“Buhay ko. Siyempre, hangga’t nabubuhay ako, lahat kaya kong ibigay para sa kanila. Ang goal mo, ibigay lahat ng mga pangangailangan nila, hindi lang ng mga anak mo, siyempre pati ng pamilya mo. ‘Yon ang pinaka-goal ko talaga,” she stated.
Another thing that she’s willing to do for them is to let them go when the time comes that they’ll have their own family in the future. As a mom, she would respect their decision, as well as would want them to learn the ropes of life and stand by themselves. However, her doors will be open for them once they’re going to need her help.
The online sensation is also very confident that all her kids, to whom she’s strict yet sweet, are going to be successful in life someday. She may be loud, loquacious, and vulgar, but Madam Inutz revealed that she actually has a heart of gold. Thus, she never falls short in reminding them to always choose kindness.
If there’s one thing she does not want them to do, it would definitely be using illegal drugs. However, she knows for sure that they will never do it, as she also reminds them that the decisions they’re going to make should always adhere to what they know is good and right.
Is she happy for who or what she has become now? She implied that it’s absolutely a “yes,” as she strives to always look at the brighter side of life, regardless if we’re going through hardships, sadness, delight, and joy in life. She then added that we must learn to be contented and have a grateful heart in order to attain the happiness we’ve all been yearning for.
Just when Anthony thought that it’s going to be just a Mother’s Day tribute to Madam Inutz, he was surprised when he received a heartwarming video message from his own mom, which truly made him emotional.
